Father's Message

Dear Folks,

I want to thank everyone for the fine way in which you are cooperating in the physical distancing and the other guidelines.  Physical distancing if properly practiced will allow us to continue to open up our church and economy.

Reception of Communion 
We have gone a little over 2 weeks since “opening up” the church for the regular mass schedule.  This is the window of time to be able to see if the opening up is causing a rise in Covoid cases.  Thus far there has not been an increase.  So, in accordance with the guidelines, we will begin the distribution of bread at all the regular Sunday masses this coming weekend. June 20 and 21.  According to the guidelines, you are encouraged to receive the bread in your hands.  If you wish to receive on the tongue, you are asked to wait till all others have received.  Receiving on the tongue often involves physical contact between the Eucharistic Minister and the person receiving.
 Special Vulnerable Mass

In order to provide an opportunity for vulnerable people who continue to self isolate themselves, we will begin to have a mass on Friday at 8:30 am solely for these individuals.  People who do not continue to self-isolate are asked not to come.  Communion will be distributed.

We will continue to monitor the situation as we continue the opening-up process.
Fr. Steve

STREAMING – we will continue to stream a mass and make it available on our YouTube channel.
